An ever present headache with traditional fixed hubs is the assembly of a drive sprocket that is attached by a thread being pulled in both directions by the pedal torque. The usual solution to avoiding the sprocket unwinding itself from the hub is a left-hand threaded lock-ring, butted up tight against the sprocket. But, as many riders have found out, this system can be quite volatile.
We thought, there has to be a better way...
...and the solution - an HG splined hub body, with sprockets that slide on and an independent lockring that never has to handle rotational forces from the drive.
Halo Fix-G advantages:
- Easy and secure fixing and servicing.
- Adjustable chainline - 41 to 52mm.
- Accepts 12 - 20T sprockets.
- No need for chainwhip tools.
"Halo's HG spline system is so obvious and brilliant that other brands must be kicking themselves for not thinking of it first. It can't slip or thread; it's way easier to fit or swap and will take down to 12t cogs, it's genius". Ty at the Footdown - www.thefootdown.co.uk
"The Fix-g hub is great! It runs smoothly as the previous Halo hub but the fact that you can move the sprocket for a perfect chainline is great and you can feel the difference straight away. Also, it's really easy to do, everyone can do it without a mechanic's help." Ivan Fiorilla, 5th Floor riding club - London. www.the5thfloor.co.uk
Note: The HG spline must ONLY be used with 7mm wide "fat foot" sprockets such as Halo Fat Foot sprockets or Gusset Double Six sprocket to avoid the cog biting into the alloy splines on the hub. Regular width HG sprockets should NEVER be used.

Our hubs must only be used with ISO standard 1.29 inch x 24TPi L/H fixed cog lockrings
Do NOT USE French (1.32 inch x 24TPi) or Italian (33 x 1mm) standard lockrings. The larger diameter French and Italian lockrings may appear to work. but. will strip the threads from the ISO hub.
